  • Lecture

    Host: Department of Mechanical Engineering
    Speaker: Professor Zhuomin Zhang of Mechanical Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology
    Topic: Nanoscale Radiative Transfer for Near-Field Thermophotovoltaic Devices
    Moderator: Assistant Professor Yu-Bin Chen of Mechanical Engineering, NCKU
    Date: Thursday, January 10th, 2008
    Time: 11 am
    Venue: Shan-Hsin Lecture Hall, 1F, Mechanical Engineering Building, Tzu-Chiang Campus
    Description: In this presentation, Prof. Zhang will first discuss the enhancement of thermal radiative flux between closely spaced surfaces, due to photon tunneling and the excitation of surface waves, followed by an analysis of the efficiency of near-field thermophotovoltaic systems. The energy streamline method is employed to explain the photon energy propagation across nanoscale vacuum gaps between SiC slabs. Finally, he will present some of our recent measurements of coherent thermal emission from microfabricated planar multilayer structures, with a theoretical study of surface waves between a truncated photonic crystal and a metallic film.

  • seminar: A Cross-Nation Investigation of Women – Organized by the Department of Foreign Languages and Literature
    The capital globalization in the recent 30 years has brought about the capital flow around the world as well as the circulation of culture, information and laborers across boundaries. In addition, under the impact of the post colonialism, the scattering and cross-border phenomenon, multiculturalism and globalization, feminism is facing more challenges. Feminism is thus being constantly revised. This seminar will be conducted to probe deeply into the studies on international women under the trend of globalization from the international perspective. More discussions on the multiculturalism and feminism will be held. The seminar plans to read the essays about international feminism, decolonization, and the relationships between women of different cultural backgrounds, countries and places.
    Time: Friday, January 25th, 2008 1-3pm
